Rate this:
In this entertaining collection of essays, Wayne Booth looks for the much-maligned "middle ground" for reason-a rhetoric that can unite truths of the heart with truths of the head and allow us all to discover shared convictions in mutual inquiry. First delivered as lectures in the 1960s, when Booth was a professor at Earlham College and the University of Chicago, Now Don't Try to Reason with Me still resounds with anyone struggling for consensus in a world of us versus them.&"Professor Booth's earnestness is graced by wit, irony, and generous humor."-Louis Coxe, New Republic
